Archaeological maps from various publications

Crania Americana
A Comparative View of Skulls of Various Aboriginal Nations of North and South America
Samuel George Morton, M.D. - 1839

Published  in 1839, 22 years before the outbreak of the U.S. Civil War, Crania Americana is an  extraordinarily rare book in any condition. Criticized in this modern, somewhat more enlightened age,  for its early 19th Century views on race, the publication of Crania Americana did provide important early steps toward the modern science of  physical anthropology.

Early Bulletins of the 
Texas Archeological and Paleontological Society

The first 25 years of  this fine archeological publication.  It's extreme scarcity is primarily due to the extraordinarily low number published (300 per year) as well as the high demand it now enjoys.  We would like to express our appreciation to the Texas Archeological Society for allowing us to reprint these volumes. 

We would also like to offer a special thanks to Tim Perttula for his invaluable assistance over the last 18 months  in making some of these rare Texas archaeological reprints possible.

We will be adding new volumes over the next several weeks, so please check back often if a volume of interest is not yet available.   Click here to access  the BTAS Page.

Having started this project quite a while ago, we pulled it off of the back burner recently due to the large number of requests.  This is truly an important contribution to United States archaeology and is our largest single volume reprint, check out the details here.

Ancient Monuments of the Mississippi Valley
Squier and Davis 1848
View Detail and Order Page

Rare and expensive, many of the surviving books are in pretty bad shape.  A combination of age and the stresses put on the binding due to its large size makes opening an original a crap shoot for additional damage.  As expected, foxing (brown areas on the paper) and degradation of the binding and pages can be expected and may be extreme in many examples.   Some pages, such as the plates, are typically foxed and stained much more heavily than text pages. 

<<=== The page on the left has an average amount of foxing and ink from one of  the plates has also transferred to this page which adds to the degraded appearance. 

On the right, the same page  after restoration. ===>>>

The Archeological Atlas of Ohio - Mills 1914

Any way you spell it The Archeological (Archeological) Atlas of Ohio was, and is,  the most famous and comprehensive archaeological atlas ever printed - with  over 5,000 archaeological features of the Buckeye State identified.  The original publication run was limited to only 500 copies which accounts for the extreme rarity and high cost of the few surviving originals.

This large format (approximately 12" x 17") soft cover book is printed on acid-free, premium heavyweight paper and features the full-size, color maps of each of the 88 Ohio counties as found in the original.   Click here to see the link and/or order this book on Archaeology Page 1
